I wanted to try something a little more ambitious, so decided to make this chest from The Scale Cabinetmaker. I used a combination of walnut, red cedar, rosewood and basswood. The saw tooth carving is done on 600 micron sheet of silver oak veneer. The inlay sheet is one I picked up at Ron's when I visited Florida ages ago, but I want to try making my own inlay for future pieces. The chest has working drawers and opens and closes on a pin hinge.
Just finished this Victorian wardrobe. The doors are hinged and have tiny brass handles so they open and close. The drawers work as well. It is made from basswood and stained with a teak finish. The lighter colored panels with the artwork is from kpla (jackfruit) veneer. The entire piece has a soft wax final finish. Scale is 1/12th. It is 7 3/4 inches tall and 4 inches wide. I hope in time to be able to have better joinery like dovetail and mitered joints. In the meantime I'll keep practicing.
